Last Saturday evening in the midst of a horrid winter storm we well, actually my husband hosted the guys game night. Normally I take care of most of the hostess duties but as mentioned previously I'm not very mobile at the moment. The first to arrive was one of our friends who owns a grocery store franchise. They are undergoing a store remodel and found a box of canning jars that were not going to be used so he brought them down to me. These are the really cute, squatty, wide mouth Elegant mason jars part of Bernardin's Collection Elite line. There are nineteen boxes each with four 250 ml jars for a total of 76 jars! I am doing the happy dance, all be it on one leg, but still dancing for joy!
Until now I only had four of these adorable jars. I guarded them something fierce since the cute jars tend to develop legs. Regular mason jars and even extras find their way back home but the cute jars continue to wander about. I reserved these four jars for mango chutney. Now that I have all the new jars, I won't have to worry so much. I'm already making a list of what I want to fill them with. A few filled jars will make their way to our friends as a thank-you for the very generous gift.
